Cape Town



What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

Not really sure -- haven't looked into it. I don't know of any other consulate staff that do a lot of local volunteering, except perhaps through their religious congregation. - Oct 1, 2017
Plenty - despite its scenic beauty and concentration of wealth and luxury, townships and impoverished neighborhoods crowd Cape Town's edges where education and health standards drop to 3rd world levels. Many of the NGOs working in these communities are happy to take on volunteers. - May 13, 2014
